Among Friends to Lodge

I have stood among plenty
To my hand not have had a coin
Have not gone hungry:

Blessed I: among friends to be
Where money is not what makes the world
Level for all men, but honour

Friendship: strangers greet as friends
Part, each to his own road, knowing
Welcome  awaits on their return

Wherever a man lodges
Nearby, regardless of his means
His wealth, his honour, bretherns welcome.
